Rebel XD reflects on being cheated out of 3rd record by Guinness book.

When I first learned that my 3rd and latest Guinness record was broken in 2009 I felt that it was time to get back to the lab and make plans to reclaim it. However, when I saw what they were replacing my record with I was a bit puzzled. It seems that they were replacing my 852 syllable rap in 42 secs record with a far inferior record and that had me confused. How is it that they can replace my record of 20 syllables per second with one that is only 15 syllables per second? 15 syllables per second? Hell, that BARELY pass the record that beat my 1998 record set by No Clue in 2005 which was 14 syllables per second (and actually, I would say that No Clue's record is still even faster than his because No CLue did his in 51 seconds). Then I notice, El Chojin's (the guy who supposedly beat my record) record was 921 syllables in a minute. What is wrong with that you ask? A MINUTE? How is it that this guy gets a whole minute a rap to break my record when I set the records time at 42 seconds? That Gave him 18 whole seconds more when in order for him to had legitimately broken my record he should only been allow the 42 second time limit in which I set. The history of the records in the book followed the less time more syllables rule and now all of a sudden this guy gets to use a whole minute to break my record and the sad part is that with 18 whole second he still only manage to get only 69 more syllables then my record. That's weak, rapping 69 syllables would take me less than 4 seconds. Not sure if Guinness was paid off or if they simply want to stir up controversy considering that the fastest rapper seems to be a fairly popular category but one thing is certain. The record they replaced my 2007 record with is a LOT slower than my 20 syllable per second rap. I look at it like this. When No Clue broke my record of 684 syllables in 54 second with his 723 in 51 seconds, I wasn't happy about it, but I respected it. I respected because without a shadow of a doubt he officially broken my record. This Guy's from Spain's record I don't respect and in fact look at it as a joke. 18 whole seconds more time to rap and his record still only pans out to 15 syllables per second only getting 69 more syllables. He only managed more syllables then me because he had 18 seconds longer to rap considering that they didn't stop him at 42 seconds which was my record setting time. Here is a scenario. El Chojin rappin at 15 syllables per second, if they stopped him at the 42 second time limit they were suppose to then he had would only be at 630 syllables. Now if I were to rap a whole minute at 20 syllables per second than that would put me at 1200. Though a hypothetical example, you can still see where I'm going with it. If he is happy with his inferior paper champion and obviously cheated for record then good for him. Also if Guinness is proud to represent such inaccuracy, it has to make you wonder, what else in there so called record book is faulty? The moral here is that I could set up to reclaim the record and I even have what I would use to do it, but I feel that it is the principle of the matter and I don't feel that I should have to take back something that shouldn't be lost to me in the first place. Maybe I will, maybe I won't, at this point it really doesn't matter to me and I look at the Guinness book with a whole new set of eyes now.

Look at the chart of the record holders starting from Twista and see if you notice anything strange?


Twista 1992-- 598 syllables in 60 secs. = 10 syllables per second

Rebel XD 1993-- 673 syllables in 54.9 secs = 12 syllables per second

Rebel XD
1998-- 684 syllables in 54.5 secs =12 syllables per second

No Clue 2005-- 723 syllables in 51.2 secs = 14 syllables per second

Rebel XD 2008-- 852 syllables in 42.2 secs = 20 syllables per second

El Chojin 2009-- 921 syllables in 60 secs = 15 syllables per second

Rebel XD is far beyond Eminem, Stan. Do you see Eminem anywhere on the list of competition..? Heck..I have a spit with 98 words in 14.02 seconds and that was just out of four tries - 154 syllables divided by 14.02 seconds, 10.98 syllables per second. Eminem never could deliver that fast power in rap God live - at 15 seconds. I tested to see if it was possible...and yes it is. I was able to spit 98 words within four tests and every time it went from 14 to 14.53 seconds. The fastest that I have recorded Eminem live, was 17 seconds...But, I caught him live in a black/white video, where he stars a bit after 2 seconds in, so I subtracted a whole half second..I'm giving him 16 1/2 seconds. There's no reason why you shouldn't be able to spit 97 words in 15 seconds or less live - unless you couldn't, and never did do it.... and you relied on logic Pro or whatever, to manipulate your spit in your CD or mainstream music video. But, just pretending he did it at 15, that's 155 / 15, 10.33 syllables per second...Still a bit slower than my time in four tries. A Bo Bo wit a brains knows...Don't validate music actor CD's and any of their videos. Now.. I wouldn't even compare Eminem to somebody like Rebel XD.

Rebel XD... Do you ever notice that these mainstream music actors that ACT off of scripts, and just imitate...Are constantly being blown up, half-truth, lied about, and all that other bullshit..? I've noticed that Twista has started to mesh into the mainstream. Now, when you look at how many words you spit... you spit MANY more words in a timeframe, than somebody like Eminem, but he be getting some record for spitting a bunch of words (with 10 other people to help and scrap together) over a course of six minutes....Ok.. It's like they looking for bullshit excuses to get some, Guinness record - in order to try to bury the peeps that are true or significant. You can create a record out of anything now apparently.. And..OK...John had a really bad bout of fucking diarrhea, and he was able to clean his ass entirely with just one square of two ply!
